NDC Technologies Metals Gauging Systems

NDC Technologies is pleased to introduce its new Advanced Metals Gauging systems for thickness, coating weight and flatness measurement for the steel, aluminum and non-ferrous metals processes. These new metals systems are based on NDC’s Total Distributed Intelligence (TDi) system architecture that has been proven across thousands of different processes and applications since its introduction in 2006.

NDC’s TDi architecture is designed to operate in hostile mill environments and deliver exceptional reliability, accuracy and low cost of ownership. High reliability approaching 100% is essential as often metals process equipment cannot be serviced while the line is operational. NDC’s rugged TDi platform achieves this through reduced complexity, fewer parts and minimal maintenance requirements.

NDC’s metals gauging systems enjoy a long heritage in the business with over 60 years experience including the legendary AccuRayTM and IRMTM brands. AccuRay established their reputation in the metals industry specializing in high-performance measurements using nucleonic technologies for stringent applications. They developed one of the first mono-energetic x-ray sensors with a permanent calibration to measure metals flat sheet thickness and metallic coatings, while IRM were the first to supply optical triangulation flatness measurement to the steel industry. IRM’s Rometer flatness measurement system was introduced in 1980 and continues to set the standard for on-line, high capability flatness measurement. These legendary metals products now provide state-of–the art measurement performance for the metals industry with the advantage of NDC’s TDi architecture.

About us

Company details

NDC Technologies metals gauging systems enjoy a long heritage in the business with over 60 years experience measuring the flatness, width, thickness and coatings of metal strip and plate. These gauges have a sound reputation for their reliability, accuracy and high-value measurements of flat sheet metal used in the manufacture of consumer goods and industrial materials.

Now with over 60 years of metals product experience, NDC offer a totally distributed intelligent architecture for their metals systems based on the successful TDI architecture that has been proven on thousands of different process and applications since 2006. This rugged platform offers reduced system complexity, high reliability and low installation costs.

NDC’s metals X-ray gauging systems feature on-line, non-contacting measurement with robust, heavy-duty C–frames to measure the thickness and coating weight of flat plate, strip and sheet products for the steel, aluminum and non-ferrous processes. Both thickness and coating weight are measured with mono-energetic x-ray sensors using NDC’s AccuRayTM family of gauges.

NDC’s infrared technologies provide expanded measurement capabilities for aqueous, organic, wax and oil coatings for the finishing processes. In addition, moisture can be measured throughout the sinter process.

The Rometer continues to be the industry leader for high performance, non-contact flatness measurement, delivering unmatched measurement capability for the most demanding applications such as hot strip mills, Steckel mills and plate mills. Flatness and width are measured using optical triangulation techniques. The Rometer flatness measurement system was introduced in 1980 and continues to set the standard for on-line, high capability flatness measurement.
